TTIC#38 Bella and Edward's Honeymoon!


Welcome to another installment of Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge!!

We took a break last week for the US holidays and I was Ecstatic to see all the Creations uploaded for our previous challenges!!! TT's followers ROCK!! I loved them all!!
***Spoiler Alert***If you have not read Breaking Dawn yet you might not want to read further!

On to Today's Challenge #38 from our Lovely Dani from HOT HOT Texas!! and she brings us a "hot" topic! ;) Bella and Edward's Honeymoon! Oh lala A long awaited part of Breaking Dawn for us all! from Dani:
"This week's challenge we will focus on the honeymoon scene from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

I’m nothing if not thorough.
Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, p.78

He didn’t ask what I was thinking, which was out of character for him. I guessed that meant that he was just as nervous as I suddenly was.Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, p.79
Breaking Dawn has so many wonderful scenes and one of my favorites is the honeymoon that Edward took Bella on after they were married. What a romantic time for them.

Alone on a tropical island… sigh. This is the stuff that dreams are made of."

The Challenges:Craft – Make something that you feel represents Bella and Edward’s honeymoon.
Comment– Tell us about your honeymoon (no personal details please!). Did you go somewhere or see something special? Or did you just hide out from the world and enjoy being with your new spouse?If you haven’t been on a honeymoon, that is ok! What is your dream honeymoon?
Here is my sample card...
I was thinking beach, Island, Isle Esme colors and Wisteria dp from BasicGrey just fit for me in my mind. Such amazing soft pretty colors. We only see glimpses into what Bella and Edward are really experiencing (darn you SM we needed more!) That I decided to cut strips of different designs and colors to represent that aspect of the honeymoon section of Breaking Dawn. All the panels are added to a white PTI base with the feathers from Into the Moonlight set from Artful INKables stamped in versamark. I couldnt decide on the "Forever Yours" or "Why am I covered in feathers?" sentiment from Fictionally Yours that I added BOTH! It works for me! Twilight fans will certainly get it!
Stamps Used: Into the Moonlight, Fictionally Yours-Artful INKables
Paper Used: White, lemon tart, dark chocolate, true black, spring moss-Papertrey Ink, Wisteria BasicGrey
Ink Used: Versamark, Versafine Black Onyx
For my comment.. I didnt go on a honeymoon till almost two years after I got married. I was five months pregnant when I was married so we waited to go on a honeymoon and we ended up sneaking in another baby in the meantime before we got to go anywhere! :) We went to Maui in the spring of 2005...It was HEAVEN on earth. I was in LOVE with Hawaii the second we landed, even though it was POURING rain on me! The smells were AMAZING, the feeling of the air...just everything. I had never seen an ocean before then so it was so amazing to me to see the ocean and just a gorgeous week of fun! Something I will never forget!
